I was pleasantly surprised at how smooth the journey was. The bus started on time we had a stop for lunch before arriving at the pier. The boat ride was longer and choppy (they provided plastic bags..), we arrived about 1 hour later than the scheduled 5 pm but all in comfort. We stayed in the same boat all the time while passengers were dropped off at Koh Samui and Koh Phangan.

Bus trip was ok, old buses but pretty nice. But the boat trip was one of the most unorganized things i ever seen. When one of the buses was late they didnt started to load everyone else. instead they waited until it was close, so instead of 15 min late from the pier we where 45 min late. Then the unloading at each stop took 30 min. And when they mixed up one bag at one stop, no new could get on until they found that bag, so there we lost another 10 min. In the end i think we where close to 90 min late all because of unorganized boat trip.

Everything happened on time, which for Thailand is sometimes surprising! Bus left from Phuket at 7.01am and ferry arrived in Koh Tao at 14.50. There is nowhere to buy food between bus station and Koh Tao. You can buy water and snacks (Peanuts, chips, cup noodles) in the ferry but other wise I would recommend to bring snacks with you and eat a breakfast :)

It would be nice if the driver didn't use his phone to text while driving - it may not be against the law in Thailand, but he's responsible for all the passengers he is driving. The air con on the catamaran was too cold!
